Step 1: Start With Any Small Cardboard Box.

I used an Amazon cardboard book shipping box.

Step 2: Size and Shape the Box.

Cut 2 rectangles of cardboard from the elongated cover and tape them inside to reinforce and make it more of a box.

Step 3: Cover With Fabric.

Wrap and staple your colored fabric of choice (I cut out a piece from an old black tshirt) around box and staple to secure on the inside.

Step 4: All Done!

I added a strap to hinder movement (I used the collar from that old shirt). I added a draw string from an old pair of sweats for an added touch.

    Nice idea! Decorating it to look like an old book would be fun too :)
